Leather is an animal skin that is treated depending on its use. It relates to tanned material that is smooth and without any hair.
Like any skin, the leather must be hydrated and protected from moisture if we do not want stains, cracks or loss of color.
Moisturize: There are many leather conditioners on the market that help moisturize the leather and prevent it from cracking. Our recommendation is that whenever you buy a leather garment, always invest in leather care products.
Cleaning: Leather and water are not very compatible. If you are going to clean your coats or jackets, you should use a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt and then apply a special cleaning cream. Don't wait until they get too dirty to clean them, as excess dirt can cause them to fade or dry out.
Let it dry naturally.
If your jackets or coats get wet, don't put them in the sun. Let them dry in a place at room temperature.
Keep it out of the plastic: A common but misguided practice is to use plastic laundry bags to keep our valuable clothes in the closet. In the case of leather, this is a bad idea. Plastic doesn't allow the skin to breathe and can cause mold. If you are going to store it, make a special, ventilated place in the closet, preferably dark and dry because sunlight or humidity can discolor and damage it.
Denim owes its appearance to a colouring technique, which can release colour pigments when washed. For this reason, it is always advisable to wash them inside out. Wash dark and intense colours separately (Red, Indigo, Black) and in cold water cycles.
We advise you to always wash them by hand, with cold water and a specific liquid detergent for delicate garments, not rubbing the fabric against itself and doing so carefully to avoid snagging the fabric.
Lace garments should not be tumble-dried, nor should they be spun in the washing machine. After washing, carefully wring out excess water and leave to dry in the open air.
Finally, if the garment requires ironing, bear in mind that the temperature of the iron should be moderate to low. Whenever possible, iron the garment inside out or place a thin cloth between the garment/ornament and the iron surface. Even better if you use the steam function of the iron. This will prevent glitter and damage to details.
Suede is a much softer and more vulnerable material than ordinary leather. Not only can it be stained more quickly and easily than leather, but it is also more difficult to clean. Stains on chamois may be made worse by normal cleaning materials such as soap and water.
Do not expose your chamois leather garments to rain, as they can be ruined.
Brush the garments regularly so that dirt does not adhere to the material.
The only way to remove water stains is with water. Moisten a brush and pass it gently over the whole garment. Let it dry in a ventilated environment. Once dry, brush the garments again.
Do not expose to the sun, as its light is very powerful and can change the color of your suede garments, as well as their texture. Store in a cool place without direct sunlight.
Protect your garments when transporting them, do not store your suede garments in plastic bags or other airtight materials because they could make the suede sweat. It is better to use a cotton cloth bag.
Use a suede protector, which acts as a barrier against dirt and water stains.
To remove the stains, we can use an eraser to remove stains, passing gently over the stain. Another way to remove the stain is with vinegar and water: mix vinegar and water in equal parts, moisten a cloth and wipe the stained garment.
If your garments have more difficult stains to remove, it is best to take them to the dry cleaner. Dry cleaning is the best procedure for suede leather.
Because it is such a delicate material, gauze garments should always be washed by hand. I followed these steps to get it.
Hand wash with cold water. Never use hot water, as it could shrink the garment. Use mild detergent as for baby clothes or delicate garments. Immerse gently and do not rub. When drying, drain the garment and wrap it gently in a towel to absorb as much water as possible, hang outside at room temperature and do not expose it directly to the sun. Once the garment is dry, iron cold if necessary.
It is a protein fiber, of animal origin, its contact with water can generate shrinkage, deformation of the fabric or the fiber's clumping. For this reason, we recommend dry cleaning in traditional dry cleaners. It is a good thermal insulator and with great absorbent power. Low resistance to rubbing. (It can generate pilling)
Materials made from it wear out if you wash it with hot water. Always use cold water. Dry in the shade if possible. Do not leave a wet garment after washing it with water. Dry garment inside out first. Once the inside is dry, turn it over to finish drying.
Vegan hair is a washable synthetic fibre, but the inner linings and fabric components may have some restriction. You can wash them in the washing machine on a delicate cycle, with cold water and coloured detergent, but remember that one of the worst enemies of synthetic fur is excessive heat. Let the garment wash for 15 minutes and then, without spinning, remove it from the washing machine. Then drain the excess water with your hands over the sink.
Natural fur coats come from animal skins and therefore it is a protein fiber like our hair. However, specialized care should be used when cleaning a fur coat to prevent the skin that holds the hair from drying and cracking. If it is too dry or not properly maintained, the skin can be damaged.
You can use warm water and some neutral soap to wash it by hand, avoiding towel and dryer drying. You can also brush your hair in the same direction to shake off the dust and somehow leave it in better shape.
It is always advisable that a professional should take care of the treatment and cleaning of this type of coat, since the best way to clean it is with a special type of machinery.
Keep your coat or jacket away from direct heat sources and never use high temperatures in the dryer.
The key to caring for synthetic fur coats like many others.
If you prefer to wash synthetic leather garments by hand, prepare a solution of warm water with mild detergent, soak a soft cloth in the solution, squeeze it and with gentle movements clean your garments. To dry, use another lint free cloth.
Drying and ironing of the viscose:
Remove moisture from the garment before drying. To do this, you can roll it up in a dry towel and apply gentle pressure that will not damage it.
Avoid the dryer and choose to dry them in the open air, preferably on a flat surface in the shade.
Always iron the clothes inside out to avoid damaging the fibres and creating unpleasant shiny clothes.
How to wash viscose so that it does not shrink or warp:
Use a delicate detergent that takes care of the fabric.
Wash with cold water. Whether you wash your viscose clothes by hand or in the washing machine, it is essential that the water is at a low temperature.
Collect all the delicate garments in the washing machine. As mentioned above, if you are going to wash viscose in the washing machine, make sure you put all the viscose garments together to protect them from damage. You can also add extra protection by placing them inside a cover.
Do not twist viscose garments. You should avoid twisting viscose garments at all costs, even when you are trying to wring them out. Forcing this fabric can lead to the deformation or tearing of your clothes.
Wash immediately if you sweat because viscose absorbs moisture easily so the fabric, in addition to being damaged, could catch on to the smell.
